a stubborn desire…
I don’t know what possessed me into trying GOSH hair dye today. But I did thinking I’d change my look by adding some red into it to go with my new haircut. Was I ever stupid into thinking that this brand would do the magic of L’Oreal‘s Feria. Not only is my hair not dark burgundy red as specified on the box that it would be, it’s so super dry. Dry to the point that I had to apply a leave-in conditioner to even be able to brush it so it didn’t break any more of my hair. I am so upset. My hair is jet-black and I cannot even change it back unless I strip the color; which will end up doing way more harm. :’(
I’ve sent GOSH’s support department an email (see below). I really hope they get back to me soon and first reimburse me for this horrible product and give me some solutions on trying to fix my hair.

I am absolutely horrified and so upset by your product. I recently purchased a box of hair dye hoping to give myself a new look after having the same hair color for over 9 months. After following after the application process exactly as you listed on the insert, I washed my hair and rinsed with the conditioner provided. I noticed more than usual hair fall, extreme dryness and to top everything off, my hair isn’t even the color the box stated it would be, instead it’s nearly jet-black. It was supposed to be a dark burgundy shade. But no, it’s BLACK!!!!!!! I can’t even change the color if I wanted to.
What do I do now? My hair is so dry. I’ve had to apply a leave-in conditioner to it in order to even brush it and prevent more breakage.
Please get back to me as soon as possible with any way I can fix my hair.
My word of advice to you: It has a horrible smell. It super liquid-y. The conditioner doesn’t help and possibly dries the hair out even more. And if you do make the mistake of using it, make sure you get yourself one heck of a leave-in conditioner and treatment because this will ruin the texture of your hair. If you’re lucky, you’ll get the color you chose (unlike me).
